    I Also Recommend:

    This book is for students wishing to learn how to set up a web page or understand what is behind web page development.

    HTML, XHTML, and Dynamic HTML is a book designed for students of web page design. It is a thorough and comprehensive guide to building and setting up a web page. This book lets you understand the code behind the web pages when browsing on the internet. Each chapter highlights one main topic and one web business and details exactly how to design a web page for that business' structure. Examples of chapters from the book include style sheets (separate pages that style html pages) and fill-in forms. The student builds web pages in each chapter on a computer as he or she learns various components and follows along with the book. If there is "lecture" material to be gained from the topic of the tutorial then that is presented in the beginning of the chapter. All concepts of web programming are quite well presented including Javascript. Every bit of html code that is necessary for the tutorial's web page design is included in the chapter so there is no guessing. The book comes with downloadable files that relate to the chapters. Each chapter (16 total) has a downloaded tutorial file which follows the book. The student must type in the book's code to make the tutorial file work in a browser (all included in the book). In addition there are case and review studies for students which they can complete with partially completed downloadable files accompanying them (students complete the remainder of the files and submit them to the instructor and this code is not included in the book). In the back of the book is a comprehensive appendix of all html terms.
